In 90-93 Chris worked with Tribe after tribe, a South African band based in L.A. The band had an alternative/world approach to their music requiring a percussive/kinetic drummer. Chris worked with the band, performing on "Love under will" and toured America and Europe opening for Pearl jam and Saigon kick.
